A lovely little bungalow in a quiet cul de sac.

5 of 5
Tracey was there to meet us and showed us around. There were fresh flowers and yummy chocolates along with chocolate buttons for the children. We had milk on the fridge for tea, a packet of coffee and wine for later. The beds had been made up with duvets but the weather was very hot so Tracey left extra top sheets and we just slept under them. It was very thoughtful. The place was spotlessly clean with plenty of towels. It may not be an ultra modern property but it was comfortable and we felt very relaxed. Also provided are a mountain of leaflets for local attractions and we were well placed to visit many of them. We could have spent another week exploring as there are so many things to do. We would certainly recommend to others. We've had a lovely break.
